It was my care to make my life illustrious not by words more than by deeds.
The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.
No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.
Concision in style, precision in thought, decision in life.
Life has got to be lived-that's all that there is to it.
Anybody can dig a hole and plant a tree. But make sure it survives. You have to nurture it, you have to water it, you have to keep at it until it becomes rooted so it can take care or itself. There are so many enemies of trees.
Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy
Too much of a good thing can be wonderful!
If we are not free, no one will respect us.
We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones.
If you have been sunned through and through like an apricot on a wall from your earliest days, you are oversensitive to any withdrawal of heat.
Life is a difficult game. You can win it only by retaining your birthright to be a person.
Life is made up of marble and mud.
It is only because of problems that we grow mentally and spiritually.
People can tell you to keep your mouth shut, but that doesn't stop you from having your own opinion
I think it can be shown that the law makes ten criminals where it restrains one.
You have to go on and be crazy. Craziness is like heaven.
We cannot live better than in seeking to become better.
We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims.
Last year I sang for the Queen of England, met the president of the United States, and got an Emmy and a star on The Walk of Fame. And what did I do? I was just being myself.
Life will not break your heart. It'll crush it.
